Komodo Death

Wow ... Thanks to AU2012 Team member Allison, I will be having Godzilla nightmares for weeks ...

JAKARTA, Indonesia – Two Komodo dragons mauled a fruit-picker to death in eastern Indonesia, police and witnesses said Tuesday, the latest in a string of attacks on humans by the world's largest lizard species.

Police Sgt. Kosmas Jalang said 31-year-old Muhamad Anwar was attacked on Komodo, one of four islands where the giant reptile is found in the wild, minutes after he fell out of a sugar-apple tree on Monday.

He was bleeding badly from bites to his hands, body, legs and neck after two lizards, waiting below, attacked him, according to a neighbor, Theresia Tawa. He died at a clinic on the neighboring island of Flores soon after.

Really? Two of these gigantic dinosaur crocodile lizard killers were circling a tree, just waiting for this guy to fall out so they could tear him apart.

This after last month, when Komodos attacked an Indonesian Park Ranger.

Folks, 2007 was the first recorded attack by a Komodo dragon on a human ever ... and now, two this year, as we approach the Animal Uprising 2012.
